Disappointing but I am not a child
on May 5, 2014
I frequently enjoy reading children's stories when the world seems too confusing or scary. I enjoy remembering how I learned so many things that seemed puzzling or scary, but now are so easy that I hardly think about what I am doing when I do them. I hoped that this story would be like that, but it was not. It is not much of a story. It was more like a little kid repeating what his or her parents told the little kid was the right thing to say or do. Some of the pictures were okay for talking to a kid about how do you feel when this happens and what do you want to do. And what else could you do. And do you think that would work better for you? All the good questions that parents try to remember when they want to help children figure out what they can do, when something happens that make them sad or scared or angry. So with an imaginative parent it could be a helpful book. But as a story it really does not work.
